Finite element analysis along with DOE scheme has been performed to obtain robust design of crankshaft assembly. This study focused on obtaining optimized fillet radius of crankshaft mainly by statistical approach. 27 design cases using 3 factors with 3 levels are constructed by design of experiment. Changes of design factors and noise factor may influence the durability of crankshaft system. General two stages of robust design may enhance the durability of crankshaft model. Increasing crank arm thickness was adopted as a shrink step and change of fillet radius was used as a shift step. By combining these two steps, the stress concentration at the fillet area is reduced and adequate fillet radius is determined for the robust design of crankshaft.
